Publisher's Summary

Wherever Chelsea Handler travels, one thing is certain: she always ends up in the land of the ridiculous. Now, in this uproarious collection, she sneaks her sharp wit through airport security and delivers her most absurd and hilarious stories ever.

On safari in Africa, it's anyone's guess as to what's more dangerous: the wildlife or Chelsea. But whether she's fumbling the seduction of a guide by not knowing where tigers live (Asia, duh) or wearing a bathrobe into the bush because her clothes stopped fitting seven margaritas ago, she's always game for the next misadventure.

The situation gets down and dirty as she defiles a kayak in the Bahamas, and outright sweaty as she escapes from a German hospital on crutches. When things get truly scary, like finding herself stuck next to a passenger with bad breath, she knows she can rely on her family to make matters even worse. Thank goodness she has the devoted Chunk by her side - except for the time she loses him in Telluride.

Complete with answers to the most frequently asked traveler's questions, hot travel trips, and travel etiquette, none of which should be believed, Uganda Be Kidding Me has Chelsea taking on the world, one laugh-out-loud incident at a time.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Hysterical. As usual

If you've read and enjoyed Chelsea's other books, than you'd also like this. Hysterical reaction to a breakup. You can tell she's getting older and her interests are changing, but she's still amazing.

Chelsea gets funnier and funnier

I have to admit, after having read every single one of her other books, I was skeptical about this one because I figured that at SOME point she had to run out of funny material.

I could not have been MORE WRONG. This is the story of Chelsea and her somehow comparably hilarious group of friends as they go on safari in Africa. The chapters are literally laugh out loud funny. Listening to Chelsea tell her story on Audible added immeasurable amounts of hilarity to her already

Hilarious!

Loved this book!! Hearing Chelsea read her own words had me laughing all over town. Just wish the audio version came out when the book did.

Mediocre & Arrogant

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Chelsea sounded bored and reluctant to read this. I bought it and cringed most the time. However, if youre into her sometimes offensive humor, flippant approach, or want to feel like a friend is reluctantly telling you a story then this could be for you. Wouldn't recommend.

Skip

I love Chelsea Handler. I love her other books. I love her show on Netflix. I hate this book. Most of the stories are not that funny and shouldn't be included in a book. The book feels forced. She also sounds forced to read it; it's like she is bored with her own book. She reads some sections as fast as she possibly can and mumbles.

Not her best

I loved Chelsea's other books, but this one was boring and not funny. If you like listening to monotone narration and a not that "funny or compelling" then this book is for you. I don't even want to finish it

Very entertaining.

She is so brave to share such humiliating events and her outrageous behavior. This will give you a schadenfreude fix for a month.

Good for what it was.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No. For what it was it was perfect.

Would you be willing to try another book from Chelsea Handler? Why or why not?

Absolutely. She's really funny and has clever ways of explaining things.

Which scene was your favorite?

When they first meet Rex and shes fantasizing about their future. So many laughs.

Did Uganda Be Kidding Me inspire you to do anything?

To live more. Smile more. Adventure.

Any additional comments?

This was great for what it was. Silly abrasive entertainment with a few good lessons. Chelsea is a joy though. Her reading her own adventures was an EXCELLENT choice.

Define Narcissism

30 minutes of this was all I could stand. Perhaps her fans love her. But for someone who did not even know who she was, her world view seems to be all about her. Not funny, not interesting, and definitely Not entertaining.

Epic book I expected nothing less than stomach aching laughter from start to finish and it far surpassed that, can't wait for the next book

Okay I guess.

I love Chelsea and I heard about this book from her Netflix special. I decided to get the audiobook as I thought it would be quite entertaining. I wasn't wrong. This was a humorous book and I really enjoyed it. It took me a really long time to read it but it was okay I guess haha.

Handler reads her own book

Loved it !!
Especially because Chelsea read the book
If your going to take all the time to write it, you may as well read it when you sell it as audible, makes the story more authentic & only the author can make it bounce
